NOOB question

Where is the vin number on the engine? Can you see it without removing any parts? If anyone has pics... Thank you in advance.

Is there a VIN or even serial number on the engine block? Where did you hear about it?

It would not be unusual for a car manufacture to stamp the chassis VIN # somewhere on the block; historic/vintage cars can be worth more when they match up. My opinion is the 1M will fall into this category some day.

Vin#'s are on most of the parts on your car like on your truck if you remove your plate.
